1872 Masculine Edition Eau de Parfum is one of two perfumes Clive Christian named as tribute to the year Queen Victoria granted her crown to revered British perfume house Crown Perfumery, acquired by the English perfumer in 1999.
This citrusy and spicy chypre starts off with lime and grapefruit, combining with an intensely heady aromatic mix of petit grain, lavender and clary sage, creating an invigorating and luxurious blend that lifts the mood and heightens the senses. A touch of woods and pepper provide some background drama and atmosphere to these bright notes.
Emperor Nero considered Clary Sage to be a sacred herb, and it is said he dispensed it to his troops to get them to focus and rejuvenate before battle. Described as a mix of neroli, lavender, musk and ambergris, Clary Sage indeed invigorates and fortifies. If green and herbaceous is your thing, 1872 Masculine Edition Eau de Parfum will delight your senses no matter what your gender.

Born in Germany and trained at Haarmann & Riemer (now Symrise), Geza’s iconoclastic disdain for the average and willingness to work with big ideas and cutting-edge synthetic ingredients has placed him at the center of some of the 21st century’s most dynamic fragrances, from cult favorites like Boudicca Wode and Paper Passion, to the breathtaking opulence of the Clive Christian line, to the international sensation that is his bestselling Escentric Molecules brand. Never one to set boundaries, Geza’s passions often find him collaborating with artists across the creative spectrum to create madcap wonders like the Smeller (built with German artist Wolfgang Georgsdorf), a piano-like scent instrument that allows the user to play their own “aromascapes.” Sometimes outrageous, always outspoken, and truly unique, Geza Schoen is living proof that the future of niche perfume is bright.
